The same as the age old problem CVS had, that of getting the groups and
permissions exactly right so that when a second user accesses it they
dont accidentally screw up the permissions.

if you use the dav model then all accesses are done through a single
user (the webserver) and access control is handled by the normal apache
methods, such that users dont need shell accounts on the server to use
